Ok so I have a betta, and she had this dot on her nose. and in the last week its gotten way bigger and looks like a tumor. Not sure what I can do about it. Any advice? Also I bought a platy yesterday and she has fungus, but I don't have a quarentine tank, so I left her in the bag and medicated the water in it. Will this be ok or is there something else I could do?
THanks!

What color is the dot and do you see it anywhere else? Around the "nose" makes me want to say Columnaris "fungus mouth". It is often white with some red around it and ocassionally it looks like strings or ragged fuzzyness around the mouth. Gills could also be red and you might see white near the top fin. If it is this, it is a bacteria not a fungus. I would suggest Kanamycin or Maracyn (erythromycin).
